Should we have a Timeline of array languages? Adám Brudzewsky (talk) 08:47, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

It's probably not useful to have one giant timeline of everything, but definitely the languages not in Timeline of influential array languages should should get into timelines somehow. Maybe a Timeline of array languages that only has non-APL dialects (I can't think of a better name)? It would also be interesting to see a timeline of array libraries such as NumPy, but it's difficult to locate these libraries or know if anyone uses a particular one. Another option is to move everything to Timeline of array languages but divide it into sections like List of open-source array languages.
Right, I meant to exclude APL dialect that are on the existing timeline. But yes, I think a single page with sections like on the open-source list would be the best option. I suspect that someone looking at one timeline will want to see the other too, so having them on a single page would be a service. Adám Brudzewsky (talk) 23:55, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
